                “A Mighty Wind” tab
Off the motion picture A Mighty Wind

Performed by the New Main Street Singers, The Folksman,
and Mitch & Micky


This is a great song, especially if you have multiple voices
and lots of guitars. 

Note to play this with an acoustic guitar because that’s what most folk music is done in.

Tuning: Standard

Intro: Everyone
N.C.
As I traveled down the back roads
        Am             F
Of this home I love so much

Verse 1: New Main Street Singers
C
Every carpenter and cowboy
           D7		  G7
Every lame man with a crutch
            C               Em
They’re all talking ‘bout a feeling
         F                  G7   G
‘Bout a taste that’s in the air
            F                                     F       G    C
They’re all talking ‘bout this mighty wind that’s blowing everywhere

Chorus: Everyone
      Bb            F
Oh, a mighty wind’s a-blowin'
         Bb             F 
And it’s kicking up the sand
      Am                            D7               G7  G  
It’s blowing out a message to every woman, child and man
       Bb              F
Yes, a mighty wind’s a-blowin'
          C        E         Am  G 
Cross the land and cross the sea
     F                 C    Am       F       G    G
It’s blowing peace and freedom. It’s blowing equality.

Verse 2: Folksman
       C
     Am                    F
To a bridge called Golden Gate
       C
       D7                 G7
To the shore of one Great Lake
          C           Em             F              G7   G                              
There’s a star on the horizon that’s burning like a flare
       F              C                  F       G    C                           
It’s lighting up this mighty wind that’s blowing everywhere

Repeat chorus

Verse 3: Mitch and Micky
         C
When the blind man sees the picture
         Am                 F
When the deaf man hears the word
         C
When the fisherman stops fishing
         D7                G7
When the hunter spares the herd
            C                 Em         F                  G7    G
We’ll still hear the wondrous story of a world where people care
    F             C                  F       G    C     
The story of this mighty wind that’s blowing everywhere

Final chorus: everyone
      Bb              F
Oh, a mighty wind’s a-blowin'
         Bb             F 
And it’s kicking up the sand
     Am                                    D7        G7  G  
It’s blowing out a message to every woman, child and man
       Bb              F
Yes, a mighty wind’s a-blowin'
          C        E        Am  G 
Cross the land and cross the sea
     F                 C    Am       F       G    C
It’s blowing peace and freedom. It’s blowing equality.
          F                 C    Am       F       G       C   G  C 
Yes, it’s blowing peace and freedom. It’s blowing you and me.

That’s it! Have fun.
